Texas Longhorns tight end signee Reese Leitao was arrested and booked into the Tulsa County Jail on Tuesday afternoon, charged with “possession/delivery of a controlled dangerous substance with intent to sell within a thousand feet of a school.”
According to the report, Leitao was arrested at Jenks High School by campus police and was found with 20 Xanax pills and more than $1,300 on his person. The FOX 23 report also notes that Leitao admitted to a Jenks High School administrator that he was selling the Xanax pills.
Here’s more on the arrest from NewsOn6.com:
According to his arrest report, a Xanax pill was found in Leitao's backpack during an administrative search by the school's principal. Leitao then admitted to distributing the pills for money. In his wallet, he had $1,289 and another $20 was found in the side zipper of his backpack.
During booking, Leitao admitted to having more Xanax in his underwear. He stood up and shook until a prescription bottle fell out containing 19 more Xanax pills, the report stated. The bottle displayed Leitao's name but was a prescription for Amoxicillin.
According to the Tulsa County Inmate Information Center, Leitao was arrested at 2:30 p.m. and booked into the Tulsa County Jail at 4:45 p.m. with a $15,000.00 bond.
